National Thrift Week 

January 17 to 23 

THE National Thrift Week Committee has fittingly chosen to celebrate Jan- 
uary 17, the birthday of Franklin,who was the greatest American apostle 
of thrift, by making it the first day of Thrift Week. Each day of that week 
is assigned its special feature. Monday (Franklin Day) is to be National Thrift 
Day, and emphasis will be placed on starting bank accounts and regular sav- 
ings installments. Tuesday will be devoted to the budget idea for personal 
and household expenses, Wednesday to taking out insurance policies, Thursday 
to urging the desirability of owning a home, Friday to making a will (which, 
it is hoped, will lead household heads to see the desirability of creating an estate), 
Saturday to the paying of debts so as to start out with a clean slate, and Sun- 
day to sharing with others. 

The Public Library suggests the following books and public documents in 
its collection as appropriate and helpful collateral reading.

CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY 




DELIVERY ROTUNDA 



The Henry E. Legler Regional Branch 

first of the group of regional or key branches planned for erection in the 
several grand divisions of the city was opened on Chicago Day, October 9th, 
1920. It is fitly named after the late librarian, Henry E. Legler, whose untime- 
ly death in 1917 deprived the Library of a great chief and the city of a valuable 
servant. The building, illustrated above, and on the front cover of this issue, is 
probably the handsomest branch library building in America. It was built at a 
cost of nearly $200,000, this amount being reserved out of the annual revenue 
for three years, since, unfortunately, the Chicago Public Library has no separate 
building fund and has never enjoyed the favor of wealthy benefactors. 

The Henry E. Legler Branch is situated on Crawford Avenue (40th Ave- 
nue), occupying the full block from Monroe Street to Wilcox Avenue. The 
building itself is 180 feet long and 80 feet deep, and consists of two principal 
stories and a capacious basement. Two main reading rooms, each 65 by 30 feet, 
Provide accommodations for adult and juvenile readers respectively; a special 
story-hour room for children is included, with a separate entrance, and ample 
space for special study groups and for all forms of library extension work is 
available in the beautiful rooms on the second floor. A book stack with capacity 
of 60,000 volumes carries the main collection, which is supplemented by book- 
cases on the reading room walls. That the new branch has already won its 
way into the favor of its constituency is shown by the statistics of books bor- 
rowed for home reading, which has attained the astonishing average of 7,000 
volumes per week.

The author believes that the philosophy of the 
future will clarify our ideas with regard to moral 
and social conflicts, and will deal with the moral 
influences which direct man's search for happiness 
into saner channels rather than with theoretical dis- 
cussions of "absolute reality."

good; an essay on moral philosophy. 
1918. L 14143 

(Constable's Russian library.) 

_The book in which Solovyof elucidates the laws

industries, 1907. Summary and conclusions. 

Carlton, Frank Tracy. Elementary econom- 
ics; an introduction to the study of ec- 
onomics and sociology. 1920. L 16685 

A simple enough treatment to serve as a text for 
secondary schools. Economic questions are dis- 
cussed from different angles, to enable the student 
to form independent opinions on the every_-day 
problems of rents, wages, transportation, prices, 
markets, taxation, banking, etc. 

Rees, J. F. A social and industrial history 
of England, 1815-1918. 1920. L 16683 
Belongs to that excellent and uncommon sort 
which, professing no more than a concise recital 
of admitted historic fact, contrives to make mere 
exposition more suggestive than comment. Times 
(London). 

Labor 

Foster, William Z. The great steel strike, 
and its lessons. 1920. L 17223 

This book by the labor official in command of 
the strike enables us to follow the methods of a 
vast organizing campaign from the start, and to 
form an opinion of the strength and weakness of 
unions. It defends the A. F. of L. against the 
criticism of the radicals who think it unable to 
cope with the situation.

1919. L 20984

Mr. Beer had spent many years in England as

state. 1920. L 17882 

A discussion of the relations between producer,

of the state.

ing on the state and the task of the 
proletariat in the revolution. 1919. L 17602 
An attempt to justify himself as the one true 
disciple of Marx. . . This book may be regarded 
as a kind of vade mecum for the true Bolshevik; 
in it he will find not only the true doctrine, but all 
the snares into which the heretics from the true 
faith have fallen. Times (London).

dure; six addresses before the Illinois

amortization and allied subjects.

what it means today. 1920. L 18015 

Prof. Corwin's purpose in this book is not mere-

ers of our _ government, but to show what in the 
course of time the constitution has come to mean 
and does actually mean today" (The Review).

shops and recommendations for scholarships.

Mr. Aiken "has striven to make tangible to us

Masefield, John. Right Royal. 



1920. 

E 14861 

A vivid tale in verse of a horse race won by 
Right Royal the "dark bay." It is similar in theme 
and atmosphere to his hunting poem "Reynard the 
Fox," and is full of life and light and color.

with an introduction by John Drinkwater. 
1920. E 11412

ture of it is always wisdom and understanding." 

Teasdale. Sara. Flame and shadow. 1920. 

E 15044 

We must acknowledge a growth in artistry. Her 
rhythms are much more subtle, more accurate 
psychologically than they used to be. . . These 
lyrics have the lilt of absolute naturalness which 
is sincere and perfect music. New York Times. 

Untermeyer, Louis. The new Adam. 1920. 

E 15085 

A frank expression of the modern poet's con- 
ception of love a conception which is as far re-

our American drama strives in vain to discover, 
the soul of their native land. D. Grafly in Nation. 

Brighouse, Harold. Three Lancashire plays: 
The game, The northerners, Zack. 1920. 

E 13513 

"The game," while seeming to be about football, 
is really about parents and children. The second 
play deals with the introduction of machine looms 
and is full of vivid interest both historically and as 
portraying the struggle between , character and 
ideals. "Zack," a character comedy, though very 
actable, is not such good reading. 

Gregory, Lady. The dragon; a wonder play 
in three acts. 1920. E 12276

Essays 

Bennett, Arnold. Our women; chapters on 
the sex-discord. 1920. L 20963 

It is delightful, provocative, and exasperatingly 
illogical. . . Being witty, human and full of chal- 
lenging contradictions, it will bore no reader, but 
will interest everyone, if only for the sake of that 
argument dear to every mind. Bookman. 

Gass, Sherlock Bronson. A lover of the 
chair. 1919. E 3060 

f The title is a subtle rebuff of that active, acquisi- 
tive, aggressive Americanism which is strenuously 
of the hour and so little to Mr. Gass's taste. . . 
Formally the book is made up of the passing show 
politics, art, thought, from the quiet of the ob- 
server's chair. New Republic.

The Public Library Its Present and Its Future 

A SERIOUS contraction in revenue, combining with the continuous rise in the 
cost of all materials books, supplies, binding as well as service, has com- 
pelled the Public Library to undertake retrenchments of the most drastic sort in 
order to bring its current expenditures within the measure of its current income. 
Confronted with a deficit in resources of $246,000 below requirements as deter- 
mined by a carefully compiled budget, it has been found necessary to institute sharp 
curtailments in all directions. In the largest three items of the budget, namely, 
salaries, books and bindings, the cut made imperative by this state of affairs is 
revealed by the following figures : 

SALARIES BOOKS BINDING 

Estimated needs $629,896.00 $150,000.00 $65,000.00 

Revised appropriations 516,241.00 75,000.00 40,000.00 

These heavy and unavoidable reductions could be met only by corresponding 
reductions in service, the dismissal of a large group of employees, and the conse- 
quent discontinuance of a corresponding number of agencies. On the page opposite 
will be found a list of sixteen branches that have been temporarily closed. Re- 
trenchments in book and binding funds, postponement of much-needed repairs, 
and the complete abandonment of all contemplated extensions will together, it is 
hoped, result in keeping disbursements for 1921 within the required bounds. The 
Library has no borrowing or bonding power for current expenses, and, under the 
uncertainties of the Illinois revenue system, anticipation of a possible surplus in 
years to come would, in any event, be a most unbusinesslike procedure. 



34 CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY 

The only source of revenue for the maintenance and development of the 
Public Library is the tax provided by the state library act of 1872, in which the 
rate is fixed at two-thirds of one mill in cities of more than 100,000 population (and 
one and one-third mills in cities and towns under that figure). In actual practice 
this rate amounts, in Chicago, to five and one-third tenths of a mill (.0005^). 
The revenue produced by the levy of this rate for the current year is, in round 
numbers, $830,000, or about twenty-nine cents per capita. A compilation of fig- 
ures on library support in the largest ten cities, printed in the Library Journal of 
New York in January, 1920, accords Chicago the unenviable distinction of ranking 
ninth in the per capita expenditure for its Library: 

Boston 74 cents 

Cleveland 64 cents 

Pittsburgh 56 cents 

Cincinnati 44 cents 

Detroit * 41 cents 

St. Louis 35 cents 

Brooklyn .- 30 cents 

*New York 30 cents 

Chicago '. 29 cents 

Philadelphia 20 cents 

*In New York only_ the Circulation Department, i. e., the branch system, is supported by 
city tax, all other activities being financed from trust funds and large endowments. 

The Library Journal tables further show that the Chicago Public Library rank? 
second only to New York in total number of volumes circulated, fourth in cir- 
culation per capita, and lowest in cost of book distributing service. 

Chicago has never enjoyed the favor of generous benefactors, whose bounty 
has provided the means for the splendid physical equipments and ample devel- 
opments of all of the other great library systems of the country. This Library 
has no endowments, building funds or other independent resources of any sort 
whatsoever. At the mercy of an absurdly insufficient, and a precariously fluctu- 
ating, tax rate, it has had to make its own way and has thus far, by strict and bitter 
economies, contrived to maintain a degree of service to its ever-growing con- 
stituency that has been at least reasonably adequate. A crisis has now arrived in 
its affairs that must be recognized and dealt with if the institution is to continue 
to function and to grow in measurable relation to its constantly expanding task: 

The Chicago Public Library, joining with other public libraries of the state 
equally hard hit, has applied to the General Assembly now in session at Springfield 
for an amendment to the Library Act of 1872 increasing the tax rate in cities of 
over 100,000 to one mill, and in municipalities of smaller population to two mills, 
on the dollar of assessed valuation. 

This means five cents more on each hundred dollars, or, to the average house- 
holder paying taxes on $6,000 to $10,000, one additional dollar per year for the 
Public Library. 

In furtherance of the adoption by the General Assembly of this amendment, 
the Public Library invites the active cooperation and support of its friends and 
patrons by promoting the passage of House Bills No. 224 and 225.

the sacraments and Catholic devotions. 
1920. M 7717 

Smith, David. The life and letters of St. 
Paul. 1920. M 2670 

Dr. Smith has produced a work of genuine liter-

agination, deep historical insight, a rich understand- 
ing of religious values and a full grasp of the pro- 
foundest scholarship. Bookman.

tion; the blending of immigrant heritages 
in America. 1920. L 16051 

Professor Drachsler urges replacing the present

Democracy, according to this author, "is more

CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY 



New nonsense novels parodying in plot and style 
the absolutely slushy love story, detective story, 
ghost story, desert-island romance, etc. Some fea- 
tures of _ our present-day writing have been picked 
that obviously need ridicule.

shevist. 1920. F 15367

New York and upon his return to the Orient. 

Walpole, Hugh. The captives; a novel in 
four parts. 1920. F 18949

sect in England who become doubters. The author 
uses the plot as a means to show how a new uncer- 
tainty is replacing the old comfortable certainty in 
matters of leligion. 

Watts, Mary S. The noon-mark. 1920. 

F 19067 

Another of Mrs. Watts's delightful character stud- 
ies projected against a background of American

successful story without a woman in it, and beau- 
tifully written.

54. CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY 

The most interesting figures in the above tables are those indicating the ex- 
tension of schoolroom deposits, a form of library service that is much appreci- 
ated by many teachers in the public and private schools of the city. An increase 
of 206 in the number of these installations and of nearly 200,000 in the number 
of volumes used indicates that the library is steadily progressing in its plans to 
develop work with teachers and schools until every room in the city is covered. 

As a whole the statistics reveal only slight progress over the preceding year, 
the branches, with a total circulation of over 4,000,000 volumes, showing a gain 
of only 8,000. This is directly due to the continued and aggravated shortage in 
the supply of competent help, which resulted in closing six of the smaller 
branches in October and the seven high school libraries during September and 
October. To this was added the difficulty of keeping an adequate book sup- 
ply in commission because of the frail and inferior makeup of most of the mod- 
ern books, which wore out faster than they could be replaced. Under normal 
conditions the total home use of books should have exceeded eight million vol- 
umes, and failure to reach that figure is clearly ascribable to the untoward 
conditions mentioned. The unfortunate contraction in revenue for 1921 will 
doubtless result in a further loss of ground during the current year and will, 
of course, preclude any addition to equipment or extension of activities. 

In the various reference and reading rooms of the Central Library, 905,511 
volumes were consulted. The Music Room and the Civics and Documents Di- 
vision show especially heavy increases in numbers of patrons served. 

The total number of books now in the Library system is 1,075,292, dis- 
tributed among 1,792 agencies in all parts of the city. Of the latter, the largest 
is of course the Central Library, housing in excess of 600,000 volumes, and the 
smallest, the schoolroom collections, each comprising fifty volumes. 

In point of home circulation the Chicago Public Library ranks second from 
the top among the public libraries of the United States and, therefore, of the 
world. In per capita cost of the Library to the citizens, i. e. in financial support, 
it ranks fifth from the bottom in a table of American public libraries in cities 
of a population of 200,000 and over. Among the largest ten cities all but one 
spend more money for public library support than Chicago; some of them twice 
and thrice as much.

literature of a comparatively recent date. Except when the word "Uncontracted" is 
added, the type includes contractions of grade \y 2 or 2. 

Books from this collection are loaned to blind residents of the State of Illinois, 
and may be called for at the Library or may be sent free through the mails to the

PHILOSOPHY 

Carr, H. Wildon. The philosophy of Bene- 
detto Croce; the problem of art and his- 
tory. 1917. L 14699 

Tt offers a refreshing approach to some of the 
oldest philosophical problems and enchantingly 
makes philosophy seem a very realistic and vital 



concern. It relates itself to the everyday fact and 
problem more convincingly even than the prag- 
matism of William James or the gospel of the 
utilitarians. New York Times.

An especially valuable book for mothers, as it 
covers the whole field physical, mental and moral 
in a sane and attractive way. It is conservative 
in its standards but scientific and progressive in its 
methods, making very clear the psychological basis 
for any suggested course. 

Martin, Everett Dean. The behavior of 
crowds; a psychological study. 1920. 

L 13944 

The author holds that "as a practical problem, 
the habit of crowd making is daily becoming a r.'ore 
serious menace to civilization. Events are making 
it more and more clear that pressing _as are cer- 
tain economic, ouestinns, the forces which threaten 
society are really psychological." (Foreword).

Volume 11. June, 1921 No. 6 

Being a Librarian 

LIBRARIANSHIP is either a "job" or a vocation. To the right kind of 
person it soon becomes a vocation, a call to social usefulness, a life occu- 
pation with, incidentally, a chance to earn a fair living while doing the 
things one loves to do. To the wrong kind it remains always a job, to be 
shirked and complained of, and to be escaped from as quickly as may be. The 
difference is not one of duties but of state of mind. Many a little junior in a 
big city library brings to her modest tasks a spirit of service and breadth of 
sympathy that glorifies her day's routine and so transforms her little job into 
a profession before she knows it. The difference between being a librarian 
and "working in 'a library" is not one of position but of attitude of state of 
mind. It is the difference between the right and wrong kind of persons in 
librarianship. 

Next to the public schools there is no other agency supported by the 
whole people for its own service that stands so high in public favor, makes 
friends so easily and has so many of them, as the public library not of this 
town alone, but everywhere. No other branch of the municipality enters more 
intimately into the daily lives of its constituents, ministers to them more 
suavely, demands less and gives more, or leaves behind it a pleasanter mem- 
ory of its visits. To no other is it given to be of greater usefulness; to touch 
human lives at more points, to fill more different kinds of wants of more dif- 
ferent kinds of people. 

There is, thus, much work to be done in a public library. A great deal of it 
in serving the multitudes who come, and as much more in bringing in those who 
have stayed away. Much work of many kinds, requiring many kinds of ability 
and degrees of preparedness, but all of it work of the sort that means service, de- 
votion to a cause ; the sort of which the old monks used to sing : Laborare est orare, 
"Work is worship." 

Every public library in the country is short of help of the right kind. From 
all quarters comes the same story : vast opportunities for service and too few will- 
ing to serve. And always the same explanation is given : The pay is too low ; 
public libraries cannot compete with business salaries. 

The pay ! What pay ? What is the pay for library service ? Is it represented 
only in the figures on the monthly check? If it is, then the high-school girl who 
takes a six weeks' course in filing, or learns how to pound a writing machine has 
the best of it, assuredly! Library salaries are too low. That is well known, 
though they are higher now than they were five years ago, and five years hence 



86 



CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY 







they will be still higher. They will never compete with business salaries because 
the public library is not in business. It has nothing to sell; it gives its goods 
away, and cannot add its increased expenses to the selling price. And the more 

business it does, the more help 
it needs and the more its always 
scanty revenue is strained. Yet 
there is ever more business to be 
done than there is help to do it 
with help of the right kind, of 
the kind of high-school girl who 
will submit to a half year of 
training in a library apprentice 
class on little or no salary in 
order to become fit to serve; 
who will go out to some little 
branch library in a congested dis- 
trict and stand behind a desk for 
eight hours, cheerfully serving, 
surrounded by boisterous young- 
sters in whom she is skilfully 

AFTER SCHOOL AT AUSTIN BRANCH . . i_ t_-. j r j i 

planting a habit and a friendship 

that will never leave them, and that may change and surely will brighten their 
squalid lives: the reading habit and a friendship for books! Who will do this 
day after day, and some nights, in order that those whose days are too full of 
labor may also be served by her the tired mother to be sent away with a cheerful 
story; the father who has not the English language, to be fitted out with the sim- 
ple manuals in his own tongue to help him acquire it; the lad who had to go to 
work too soon, with something about other kinds of work more to his liking, or 
with tales of other lads in other times and climes in which he may steep himself 
and so forget his own and take courage. It takes a state of mind to do that kind 
of work and to know that the school chum with the six weeks' business course 
is getting a bigger pay check for less work and shorter hours, the state of mind 
that amounts to the conviction that work is worship and the pay check not its goal. 
The Chicago Public Library expects to have places for a hundred young 
women of the right kind 
within the next year. It has a 
training class offering free in- 
struction to a limited number 
of acceptable apprentices upon 
terms described on the next 
page. The beginners' salary is 
sixty-five dollars a month, for a 
forty to forty-four hour week, 
part of it night work, with 
small annual increases and good 
opportunities for steady though 
not rapid advancement. To the 
right kind of young woman there 
is here presented an opportunity 
for high usefulness, amid pleas- 
ant surroundings and with con- 
genial associates, leading up to 

a professional career of service and a safe and sufficient livelihood. To the wrong 
kind it means only a poorly paid job. That kind should not apply.

LlBRARIANSHIP AS A VOCATION 

OUNG WOMEN with the requisite educational background 
are invited to consider the opportunities for useful and attrac- 
tive occupation open to Trained Librarians.

free instruction in the fundamentals of library methods and prac- 
tice, and preparing candidates for employment in this Library under 
the rules of the Chicago Civil Service Commission. 

The next class will open Monday, September 12th, continuing in daily sessions 

for about eight months. 

Complete High School course is the Minimum Educational Requirement 
for Admission to Training Class.

Shedd Park Branch 



BOOKS FOR VACATION 

VACATION loans are made on and after June first to any 
registered card-holder. Ten books or less may be taken out 
to be returned on or before October first. Five of the ten 
may be fiction, other than seven-day books; the rest may be drawn 
at will from any or all classes of literature, except the most recent 
books, or all ten may be non-fiction if preferred. 

Vacation loans are made to juvenile borrowers upon the writ- 
ten request of parent or guardian. 

The loan must be made in one transaction either at the 
Central Library or at a branch. Ten books or less will be issued at 
one time for the whole vacation period and may be returned in 
installments. The borrower's regular library card must be sur- 
rendered when the vacation loan is made, and will be returned to 
him when all obligations have been canceled. 

Borrowers may arrange to have their vacation books shipped 
out of town to their summer address by leaving the amount of 
postage plus a fee to cover wrapping and shipping, at the rate of 
three cents per volume or twenty-five cents for ten. All shipping, 
both ways, will be at the borrower's risk. 

Borrowers may obtain help in making their selections by 
inquiring at any branch or at the Information Desk of the Central 
Library. 

When books urgently desired for vacation use are not avail- 
able on the day when the borrower calls, arrangements may be 
made to have them sent later by leaving a deposit to cover post- 
age and shipping charges. Any balance of such deposit remaining 
at the end of the vacation period will be refunded. 

We would call attention, also, to the parcel-post card issued 
by the Library. This is a plan enabling the borrower to pay for a 
dollar's worth of postage at a time, so that he may receive and send 
back books by mail when out of the city. This arrangement, 
however, covers only the regular loan period of two weeks (with 
the privilege of renewal for two more weeks) and does not have 
reference to vacation loans.

(Lippincott's training series.)

sion how best to prepare themselves for it. Survey.

PHILOSOPHY 

Psychology, Psychoanalysis 

Edson, David Orr. Getting what we want; 
how to apply psychoanalysis to your own 
problems. 1921. L 13886 

The author maintains that as we learn through 
psychoanalysis to understand the structure of our 
mind and the develoment of mental processes 
we can learn to control it as a mechanic controls 
a machine. 

Everett, Mrs. Leo. The privilege of pain; 
introduction by Kate Douglas Wiggin. 
1920. L 13998 

A description of the historical evidence that 
physical debility has often been found allied to 
genius. Booklist. 

Lawrence, D. H. Psychoanalysis and the 
unconscious. 1921. L 13971 

In so far as it directs attention to the need 
of bringing into fruitful interaction the discoveries 
of Freud and our moral ideas in general, it will 
have done for the psychoanalytic movement the 
greatest possible service, that of clarifying its 
issues and lending dignity and significance to its 
results. Professor iBuermyer in the New York 
Post. 

Tansley, A. G. The new psychology and its 
relation to life. 1920. L 13953 

Particularly interesting is his discussion of the 
"universal complexes" of the ego, herd and sex, 
which result from the play of experience upon 
the primary instincts. The book is on the whole 
free from those pathological exaggerations which 
characterize so many of so-called psychoanalysts. 
Survey. 

Tridon, Andre. Psychoanalysis, sleep and 
dreams. 1921. L 13655 



Gives a sane presentation of the Freudian view, 
while at the same time illustrating some of its de- 
fects. As a handbook upon the subject it can be 
commended on account of the clarity of its pre- 
sentation. New York Post. 

Child Study 

Averill, Lawrence Augustus. Psychology 
for normal schools. 1921. L 13681 

(Riverside textbooks in education.) 

Cabot, Ella Lyman. Seven ages of child- ; 
hood. 1921. L 13683

they view tragically if they do not recognize the I 
stages through which children grow. Booklist. 

Godin, Paul. Growth during school age, its 
application to education. 1920. L 13692 
A somewhat technical study of the physical 
characteristics of childhood and adolescence. Its 
special value lies in the fact that its results are 
based on repeated measurements instead of single 
ones, as is usually the case. 



Tracy, Frederick, 
lescence. 1920. 



The psychology of ado- 
L 13716 



(Handbooks of moral and religious education.)

scientific spirit and sincerity are vouched for by 
an Oberlin professor of psychology. 

Kilner, Walter J. The human atmosphere 
(the aura). 1920. L 13372 

He is not in the least interested in occult mys- 
teries and theosophic theories. All he wants is 
to ascertain facts, to demonstrate them scien- 
tifically, and to find 9Ut whether they have prac- 
tical value. He describes each case in detail, giv- 
ing the size, shape and color of the aura. New 
York Times.

teaching. 1920. L 13381

Volume 11 October, 1921 No. 8 



How the Chicago Fire Started the Public Library 

*""* HE romantic beginnings of the Chicago Public Library are fitly called to 
-* mind on this occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the great Chicago Fire of 
1871, since the Library literally owes its inception to that calamity. No doubt 
Chicago would hav*e had a public library sooner or later, in any event, but 
certainly the foundation of such an institution was farthest from the thoughts 
of the distressed city in the distressful winter of 1871. But, among the bene- 
factions pouring in from all parts of the globe, came tidings of a collection of 
books assembled in London for shipment to Chicago "as a mark of English 
sympathy." The donors comprised the entire British literary and social world, 
stirred to this united action by an appeal issued by Thomas Hughes,* himself 
the author of "Tom Brown's School Days" and other works, and signed with 
him by Queen Victoria, Gladstone, the Duke of Argyll, Disraeli, Carlyle and 
many other distinguished personages. No copy of this original circular is now 
extant, but the following quotation from it sufficiently reflects the sentiments 
animating the enterprise: 

"The Library to be established would be regarded as a token of that sentiment of 
kinship which, independently of circumstances, and independent of every other 
consideration, must ever powerfully affect the different branches of the English race." It 
continues by saying, "that while the home literature of the present day and the last hun- 
dred years will form an important portion of the New Library, the characteristic feature of 
the gift will consist in sending to the Americans works of the thirteen preceding centuries, 
which are the common inheritance of both peoples." 

A letter addressed by Mr. Hughes to the London Times shortly after- 
wards is also worth quoting: 

*The Public Library has sought to signify some slight recognition of its obligation to Thomas Hughes 
as its virtual founder and patron by incorporating his name in the title of its children's department: The 
Thomas Hughes Room for Young People. 



126 CHICAGO PUBLIC LIBRARY 

To the Editor of the Times 
Sir: 

In consequence of the favourable replies of British authors & learned societies to the 
appeal for books for a free library at Chicago the committee have been obliged to look for a 
space where the gift books can be reed., classified & packed for transportation to America, 
& I am glad to say that the Board of the Crystal Palace Company have willingly given 
the necessary space. May I be allowed through your columns, to request that all persons de- 
sirous of contributing books will forward them to the Crystal Palace, Sydenham, E. C., 
merely endorsing "For the Chicago Free Library" on the parcel, & preserving a duplicate 
list to compare with the list that will be advertised? As Her Majesty has set the good 
example of giving her autograph on the title-page of her books, I would suggest that all 
authors should do the same. I may here say, in answer to certain statements which have 
appeared in the Press, that the proposed gift has been warmly approved both in England & 
America & the list which will be advertised in due time will include the names of a very 
large number of our most eminent literary & scientific men as contributors. 

As the library will contain books old & new in all departments of literature, donations 
in money will be employed in the purchase of rare works not otherwise obtainable, & to 
defray the necessary expenses. Such donations may be sent to Sir John Rose (Morton Rose 
& Co., 1 Bartholomew-lane, E. C.) who has kindly consented to act as treasurer. 

The honorary secretaries Messers. A. H. Burgess or F. W. Chepon will answer any 
inquiries addressed to them at 1 Adam-Street, Adelphi. 

I am, Sir, yours faithfully, 
(Signed) Thomas Hughes, 
Chairman of Committee. 
Lincoln's-Inn. Dec. 2, 1871. 

The arrival of the English books, which began to come in instalments be- 
fore the end of the Fire year, created a situation not without humorous as- 
pects. Contrary to the assumption of the donors, there had been no public li- 
brary in Chicago before the Fire; the city had no legal authority for 
maintaining one, and no revenue for its support. Least of all was there any 
safe or proper place for housing the precious volumes that were being hurried 
across the Atlantic to the rescue of the stricken populace. Mayor Joseph 
Medill, to whom Mr. Hughes had unfolded his project in a letter, referred the 
matter to a committee composed of the Hon. Thomas Hoyne, E. C. Larned, 
J. M. Walker, D. L. Shorey, S. S. Hayes and Henry Booth, .all citizens of emi- 
nence and dignity. The first thing this committee did was to secure an aban- 
doned iron water supply reservoir as a temporary store room for the books. The 
"Tank" stood on a thirty-five-foot high masonry base in the rear of the tem- 
porary city hall hastily erected at LaSalle and Adams streets, and locally 
known as the "Rookery," which present-day citizens will recognize as the name 
of the stately office building now occupying that site. Circular in shape, with 
a diameter of sixty and a height of thirty feet, and having but recently demon- 
strated that it was superlatively fire-proof, the Tank was regarded as a happy 
find, and the gift books were stored in it, as they arrived, pending developments. 
The second step of the Committee was to secure the enactment by the Illinois 
General Assembly of a law enabling municipalities to establish public libraries 
and to levy taxes therefor. This law was passed March 7th, 1872, and is the 
statute under which all Illinois public libraries are organized. 

Eleven days later, on March 18th, 1872, an ordinance of the City Council 
established the Public Library under the new law, and on April 8th Mayor 
Medill appointed the following as the fiirst Board of Directors : Thomas Hoyne, 
S. S. Hayes, R. F. Queal, J. W. Sheahan, D. L. Shorey, Herman Raster, Wil- 
lard Woodard, Elliott Anthony and Julius Rosenthal. 

Failing more suitable quarters, the Directors proceeded to convert the 
Tank into a book room by lining its walls with shelves, having a capacity of 
18,000 volumes, and cutting a skylight in the roof. A temporary new story was 
added to the City Hall connecting with the book room by a bridge, and here,

THE BOOS BOOM IN THE OLD WATER TANK. 



on New Year's Day, 1873, a library reading room was opened to the public with 
3,157 volumes upon the shelves. Circulation of books for home use was not 
begun until May, 1874, after removal to more commodious and accessible space 
at Wabash avenue and Madison street. Meanwhile the first librarian had been 
secured, in the person of Dr. William Frederick Poole, who came from the Pub- 
lic Library of Cincinnati, and guided the new institution through its critical 
period of growth for the next fifteen years. 

Other donations received in these early days included a large collection of 
German books presented by the German book trade at Leipzig at the sugges- 
tion of Chicagoans of Teutonic birth, as well as a number of gifts of books and 
magazines in varying quantities from local citizens. But the English collec- 
tion must always remain by far the most important and valuable, alike because it lit- 
erally prompted the foundation of the Library, and because of its intrinsic worth in 
quality and quantity. It included the works of all the great British authors of 
the day, in many cases with autograph inscriptions. Among them were found

such eminent names as Sir Charles Lyell, Robert Ferguson, J. McGregor, Sir 
Roundell Palmer, John Bright, Sir Charles Dilke, W. G. Palgrave, Alfred R. 
Wallace, Charlotte Yonge, W. Stanley Jevons, John Stuart Mill, Henry Mauds- 
ley, Julia C. Young, David Masson, -A. H. Layard, Cha'rles Kingsley, Aubrey 
DeVere, W. M. Rossetti, T. F. Palgrave, St. George Mivart, Dean Stanley, R. 
A. Proctor, W. E. Forster, Octavius Morgan, Herbert Spencer, W. Thorn- 
ton, W. A. Freeman, Samuel Smiles, Gladstone, Disraeli, Carlyle, Huxley and 
Thomas Hughes. The Duke of Wellington's Dispatches, in twenty-three 
volumes, were sent by his successor, and Monckton Milnes included his illus- 
trated edition of Keats. 

Queen Victoria contributed an autographed copy of "The Early Years of 
the Prince Consort." Lady Trevelyan sent the works of her lately deceased 
brother, Lord Macaulay. Publishers and learned societies gave complete sets 
of their productions, the universities of Oxford and Cambridge provided sump- 
tuous bindings of polished calf for many of the more important volumes. The 
British government presented the complete Patent Reports since 1617, and this 
gift has been continued to date, as have also the great series of historical re- 
prints, calendars of state papers and archives issued by the Master of the Rolls. 
It is doubtful whether the whole history of culture and literature contains a 
parallel to those spontaneous and lavish benefactions in the form of books of 
the highest degree of character and beauty thus freely and generously bestowed by 
a nation upon the kinsmen across the seas as a token of sympathy in a time of trial 
and distress.

1875, is recorded as 88,682 volumes; the number of volumes in the library was 
17,355. Twenty-five years later, in 1900, the home circulation had risen to 
1,749,755 volumes and the number of volumes in the Library to 258,498. There 
were at that time sixty delivery stations through which books could be drawn 
from the Central Library for home, use, and six branch reading rooms without 
circulating privileges. 

Today there are 1,792 separate agencies of the Public Library for home 
circulation, all but sixteen of which have book stocks of their own, ranging from 
50 to 25,000 volumes. The total number of books owned is over 1,100,000, and 
the total home use 8,000,000 volumes per year. 



"Our much-respected Chief-Magistrate, Mayor Medill, said a few weeks ago, 
in his address at the opening of the new Chamber of Commerce (the first an- 
niversary day of the great Fire), that 'after all, our great Fire may prove to be 
a blessing in disguise.' I am a convert to his doctrine, and the establishment 
of this Library is not the least of the blessings which the Fire so providentially 
has been a proximate cause of producing." 

(Thomas Hoyne, in his address at the opening of the Public Library, Jan. i, 1873.)

Aids in Selecting Books for Children 

AFTER three years, Children's Book Week has now become an institution 
observed throughout the country by means of book displays, book talks by 
children's librarians, and the distribution of suggestive lists of children's reading. 

For this purpose various lists have been prepared. Among these is the 
Book Shelf for boys and girls an annotated list, compiled by two well known 
children's librarians and the chief librarian of the Boy Scouts of America. The 
Boy Scout organization does not approve all books published under the caption 
of Boy Scout stories but prefers that boys read the more realistic type of story 
recommended in this list. 

The Book Shelf is arranged under subject and according to age. The sub- 
ject headings are especially novel such as : "Stories of real people," "Books 
written by children," "Stories that might be true," etc. The added feature of 
the 1921 edition is the Index. This list may be purchased at the Library at 
the cost price of five cents. 

Graded lists in the form 'of book marks, prepared by the Chicago Public 
Library, contain interesting suggestions. These lists are annotated to appeal 
to children. Longer graded lists prepared by the school department supplement 
these short book marks, and all these lists are for free distribution. 

The American Library Association has issued a new buying list for parents 
and others who desire to make gifts to children. It is an annotated list, ar- 
ranged under the subject headings of "Picture books and other books for little

children," "Books for young children," and "Books for older boys and girls." 
This may also be procured at the library. 

A list of Christmas references for those wishing Christmas stories to tell 
or read aloud, Christmas plays, Christmas games, or descriptions of Christmas 
customs in -other lands has been compiled by the Chicago Public Library and 
may be purchased for five cents. 

The following books will also be useful to those interested in children's 
reading : 

Field, W. T. Fingerposts to children's reading. J 2769. 
Hunt, C. W. What shall we read to the children? J 2837. 
MacClintock, P. L. Literature in the elementary school. J.4759. 
Moore, A. C. Roads to childhood ; views and reviews. J 2845. 
Olcott, F. J. The children's reading. J 2829. 

All these lists and books may be obtained or consulted at the Chicago Public 
Library. 

Experts are nowadays being consulted in business, factory management, 
and even farming; why should not the busy mother and teacher receive sug- 
gestions from those giving most of their time and thought to the subject of 
the children's reading? 

There will be an exhibit of attractive books for children on display during 
Children's Book Week in the corridor of the Fourth Floor, adjoining the Thomas 
Hughes Room. 

The staff of the Chicago Public Library welcomes this opportunity to meet 
and advise with those who are interested in children's reading. 



Opera Scores, Librettos, and Plots 

TN the Music Room on the fifth floor of the Main Library building are to 
be found librettos together with from ten to twenty copies of the vocal 
scores of all the favorite operas and a smaller number of the less familiar ones. 
They may be borrowed on special music cards issuable to all registered book 
borrowers on application. 

Much difficulty has been experienced in trying to secure scores of the new 
operas and ballet novelties announced for production in the Chicago Opera rep- 
ertory for this season, and not all have proved to be obtainable. Below is a list 
of references to books containing plots of the operas in the program for the 
coming season. The figures refer to the pages and the letters to the books ac- 
cording to the following key :

has a chance to question the premises of the mili-

trines of exclusive sovereignty and balance of 
power. Chicago Post.

LITERATURE 

Eliot, T. S. The sacred wood; essays on 
poetry and criticism. 1921. J 7649 

Contents: Introduction, The perfect critic. Im- 
perfect critics: Swinburne as critic; A romantic 
aristocrat (George Wyndham) ; The local flavour; 
A note on the American critic; The French in- 
telligence. Tradition and the individual talent.- 
The possibility of a poetic drama. Euripides and 
Professor Murray. Rhetoric and poetic drama. 
Notes on the blank verse of Christopher Marlowe. 
Hamlet and his problems. Ben Jonson. Philip 
Massinger. Swinburne as poet. BJake. Dante. 

Mr. Eliot is a poet, and his criticism deals largely 
with poetry. He has very definite ideas about the 
function of criticism, regarding it (in contrast to 
the impressionistic school) as an exact science and 
not an art or in any sense creative.

The chief object of the book is to make the con-

tion to generation as clear as possible. This leads 
to a stressing of essentials and to the omitting of 
details where their inclusion would tend to con- 
fuse the larger view. Book Review Digest.

* * from the staff, and $242,000 deducted from the appropriation for the 
year by reason of a sharp decrease in revenue, the Public Library shows a 
home circulation for the current eleven months only 180,000 volumes below

penses of moving into better and larger quarters, and the branches in Stanton 
Park and Kosciuszko Park were taken over by the respective Park Boards in 
order to keep them open. 

With an increased tax rate granted by the last General Assembly we are 
preparing to resume all our activities upon the scale of previous years, and to 
add to our resources and installations as rapidly as possible in order to give 
proper Library service to every citizen. Systematic expansion, including a 
carefully developed building program, will occupy the attention of the Board 
for the next, and for many succeeding years, in pursuit of the goal set several 
years ago when the Board announced its plans for ultimately providing: "Li- 
brary service for every citizen within walking distance of his home."

nates and is well done. The poor relations of a

another and the effects of the war upon them 
all make up the story.

Mackail, Denis. 
1921. 



Romance to the rescue. 
F 24854 



This is a pleasant English novel, humorous, but 
with moments of emotion. It has a theatrical back

BOOK BULLETIN 



Nathan, Robert. Autumn. 1921. F 15621 

It is beautifully written and its insight into 
the psychology or the village folk and into the 
soul of age is uncanny for Mr. Nathan is a young 
man. But he is a poet, and in a wider sense of 
the word, this book is a fine pastoral poem.

Man. 1921. F 15657 

Sequel to Ditte, girl alive! F 15656. 

Continues the story of this down trodden little 
slavey. The excellence of the book lies in the 
author's gift of expressing the words and thoughts 
of the outcasts from sheltered happy lives, but in 
its English form it suffers from inadequate trans- 
lation of the simple colloquial Danish.

him.

transition. 1921. F 17575

scendants of an average English family. Mr. Solle

ism without a clutter of useless details, romance 
without appeals to sentiment or vain imaginings."

jor. 1920. F 17612

Volume 12 February, 1922 No. 2 

The Library in 1921 

Summary of the Annual Report of the Board of Directors 

DURING the year just closed 423,164 Chicago library patrons withdrew 
7,472,768 books for home reading from the Public Library, an average 
of 24,501 volumes per day. During the same period, 910,784 volumes 
were read or consulted in the Reference Department. Sixteen of the 45 
branches were closed early in the year because of a serious shortage in funds. 
In the preceding year these 16 branches showed an aggregate circulation of 
819,794 volumes. Yet the net loss because of the curtailments of service is but 
180,000 volumes for the year, slightly more than one average week's figures. It 
is therefore entirely safe to say that, with all activities running under full time, 
the book use for the year would easily have exceeded 8,000,000 volumes. 

Direct service by means of deposits of books was given to 1,850 school 
rooms in 244 schools, in which 91,644 volumes were placed and were read 
679,511 times. Business house and factory libraries, traveling libraries and 
collections in settlements, Sunday schools, community centers, camps and 
clubs, to the number of 211, show a book use of 1,432,677 volumes. During 
the summer 1,600 volumes were supplied to fifteen camps maintained by vari- 
ous Chicago organizations, such as Boy and Girl Scouts, Y. M. C. A., &c., in 
Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. Library service is now maintained in four 
hospitals, the largest and most recent installation being in the Cook County Hospital,

where the response has been immediate and gratifying. The recognized thera- 
peutic value of good books makes this a most important subdivision of our 
extension activities, which we hope to increase as rapidly as possible. 

In the program for the new year, based upon the assurance of an income 
sufficient to justify a forward-looking policy, the first step will be resumption 
of complete and full-time library service in all agencies, including those that 
were kept closed during the entire past year. Extension by means of new 
agencies, to be established wherever proper accommodations can be found, will 
also occupy the attention of the Library. If industrial conditions permit, it is 
hoped that some building operations, long held in abeyance, may be initiated. 
Complete rehabilitation of book stocks in all agencies, much-needed repairs 
and renovations, and the further extension of book distribution in all directions 
to the limit of our resources will be undertaken, made possible by the new tax 
rate of eight-tenths of a mill, which is expected to yield an income of approxi- 
mately $1,300,000. 



Branch Service Resumed 

Attention is called to the resumption 
of full service hours in all of the prin- 
cipal branches. 

All branches that have been in op- 
eration during the past year are now 
open from 9 A. M. to 9 P. M. every day 
except Sunday.

A delightful story of Roosevelt's three years in 
Dakota, 183-l'88o, vivid, clear cut and with a sense

The woman's life is embittered because she is

A light comedy of love and pride, the first of
